I just wanted to quickly share what I crocheted for my two kids Halloween costumes. My son is Indiana Jones and my daughter is Doc McStuffins. Learn how to create DIY costumes that can be worn long after Halloween.

About the yarns…
I began planning this project back in June. I wanted to come up with a crocheted piece for each kid that was versatile and could be worn as a regular piece of clothing. I wanted it to be machine washable but also the superior fiber quality that you can expect from Purl Soho. I really love the detailed information given for each fiber online, it’s personally taught me a tremendous amount. After weeks and weeks of researching the different yarn options, I settled on Serif for the Jacket and Morning for the Dress. And then when Labor Day rolled around, I was able to get all the yarn I needed on sale.
My favorite part about Purl Soho is the sales! It’s not common in the luxury fiber world to find some of this fiber on sale. I highly recommend joining their email list and keeping an eye out for the particular yarn you are looking for to go on sale. Pretty much all of their products are on a calendar rotation for sales. Another tip is that usually, on all the major holidays, they will do a big website sale where all of the yarns in the Purl Soho branding go on sale for that weekend.
